Any word game requires using your bean, but the way to win Jabuka is to use the most beans in a spontaneous, fast-paced race to be the most prolific wordsmith. And here's the innovative twist: the coffee bean-shaped pieces with yellow characters can be turned to form different letters, changing j's into r's, m's into e's, and many more morphing moves. The totally twistable Jabuka alphabet even includes double letter combinations that change with their orientation. Use these alphabet chameleons to form new words or to hijack and transform existing words made by another player or team. The team that uses the most beans—straight up or strategically askew—wins the game (with a shout of "Jabuka" of course!).
